Thin head with lots of lacing on a clear golden body. Aroma is light with light malt and sweet corn. Flavor is more of the same. Not boasting a very strong flavor but consistent with the style. Light bodies and high carbonation. Drinkable and fuller than most in the genre.

A- A birght straw color, amazing clarity. Delicate lacing. Thick foamy, persistent head. Clearer than my windshield mirror. The perfect image of beer.

A - Confusing. This is very bready. It's clean, not much yeast. Still, I pick up the scent of fresh-from-the-oven rolls. There's no hops - as expected. And not yeast - very unexpected. Kinda throws the perception of something chewy and malty.

T - Some grassy Pils flavor followed by the taste of pear jam or cobbler. This finish is oddly fruity. This beer doesn't have the baking-dough quality of English Ales, but it finishes as fruity as a street bazaar. This ale is almost closer to a Wit than anything British.

M - Drinkable. It's less than 5% alc and not terribly carbonated. I cannot complain about the body. Still, I don't find it favorable.

O - Nice to try, but I am not sure it was worth the price. The fruitness of it didn't win me over. I would welcome this beer in the summer months, but beyond the un-aspiring qualification of thirst-quencher, this beer offers little.

pleasing lacing display

A: Pours a crystal clear pale straw yellow with light amounts of visible carbonation. There is a finger tall white foamy head which dissipates quickly leaving about a quarter of a finger tall layer of bubbles (not as thick as the original head). Light lacing is observed.

S: Aromas of sweet & pale malts with some grassy hints. More complex than I expected. Also some faint hints of apple and pear.

T: Very refreshing, well balanced with subtle complexity. Flavors are sweet and pale malts up front followed by some apple and pear and finishes with grassy hints.

M: Light to medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Very good example of the style and a very enjoyable, very sessionable beer. Brings back memories of visits to the northern parts of Germany on a warm fall afternoon.
